    I enjoyed this cup of coffee, although its not quite what Im typically looking for in an Ethiopian. It has an incredible aroma, with apricot notes to go along with cocoa.

    Once brewed, this coffee has a very full bodied mouth feel. Chocolate and prune are what I get with a little walnut. Its naturally bittersweet.

    While its fairly smooth for me structurally it didnt quite come together.
